Item description for How To Draw Manga: Sketching Manga-Style Volume 2 (How to Draw Manga) by Hikaru Hayashi...
Proportion sketching allows the artist to develop head-to-body ratios to differentiate the various characters and distinguish between the two genders. It also allows the artist to draw characters in dynamic or striking poses and design characters that suit a variety of genres and settings. This volume explains to the reader how to use manga sketching to devise head-to-body ratios that make each character distinct.

One of the Best Jul 4, 2008
This is perhaps one of the bests manga drawing books I have ever used. Not ideal for someone just starting out, however if you have a little bit of experience this book can really take you to the next level.
How to Draw Manga Sketching Style Volume 2 Nov 21, 2007
basic drawing book. deals mostly with proportion of figures. would recommend How to Draw Chibi by Ben Dunn. much more info and drawing examples.
EXCEPTIONAL WHEN WITH VOLUME 1 Aug 28, 2007
I have been using the manga style for 25 years, yet i found this book a very welcome addition to my library of over 200 reference books. Using it with the sister volume #1 is simply a delight. The book is well presented and extremely clear for the beginner and the professional. I have recommended it and the sister volume #1 to many beginning to professional manga artists.
A big rough draft guide! Jun 25, 2007
This book is basically a follow up to the first volume, but in this book they show you examples of drawing proportions on chibi characters as well as standard size characters. I really enjoyed the contents of this book. This whole book teaches you the correct head to body ratio when drawing your characters as well as their chibi counter part. Not only does Hikaru show you these examples, he also put in some facial expressions and action poses (for both chibi and standard size characters). Like I said in my title, this book is basically a big rough draft sketch book that's full of helpful images. I would definitely recommend getting this book, especially if you liked the first volume. This book advertises just what the title suggests, nothing more nothing less. If you are looking for something more than what the title suggest, then you will be sorely disappointed. I truly believe that one would benefit from this book tremendously and their art style will improve drastically. So if you are a big fan of chibi drawing, get this book! You won't be disappointed!
